This is the invisible church, which however can be represented and also is represented in every denomination, because there are men everywhere, who believe with intimate love in Jesus Christ, who are also completely absorbed in love for their fellowmen - who can be called real Christians, because through their way of life they prove the belonging to him, who has crowned his love work on earth with his death on the cross.

Church of Christ.

28. July 1954. B.D. NR. 6010.

The communion of Jesus Christ exists out of all believers, who see in Jesus Christ their redeemer, who believe in him as in the son of God, who descended to earth, to offer the sin sacrifice as man for the whole mankind - and who therefore want to follow him. All deeply believing men are to be understood by the "church of Christ", which he himself has founded on earth; all, who seriously strive for to be Christians of action; all, who are not just form Christians; all, who stand in living faith and place themselves consciously under the cross of Christ. Jesus Christ must get acknowledged by the members of his church, and from this acknowledgement then also grows the duty for them, to live according to his teaching: - to therefore consciously lead a love life, as he himself has held it up as an example to men and calls upon to do it through his call: "Follow me." Who obeys this call and acknowledges him, he also belongs to the community, which is called "church of Christ". This is the invisible church, which however can be represented and also is represented in every denomination, because there are men everywhere, who believe with intimate love in Jesus Christ, who are also completely absorbed in love for their fellowmen - who can be called real Christians, because through their way of life they prove the belonging to him, who has crowned his love work on earth with his death on the cross. This community therefore exists everywhere, where real Christians live - for all these belong into the church of Christ, and where now two or three of such Christians come together in his name, there he himself stays in the midst of them, the founder of the church of Christ, and he fills them with his spirit. Therefore also the thoughts and words of them will be alright and even more to be judged, than the word of a preacher, who is still no living representative of the divine love teaching, whose words still do not show the inner life, the spirit, which is the mark of the members of the church of Christ. And this spirit will always express itself in a way, that the word of God is preached and interpreted quite simply - which can also happen in a simple conversation, in the smallest circle, in the most natural way, wherever members of the church of Christ are together. For no formality confirms this membership, but alone the love spirit of the individual, who pushes towards Jesus Christ in living faith in him as God's son and redeemer of the world, in whose human cover God himself has embodied himself, to redeem men from sin and death..
Amen. B.D. NR. 6010.
